NL East Standings Tightening

Despite more and more bad news on the injury front for the Phillies, the NL East has continued to tighten. The Washington Nationals were swept by the Marlins which means they hold just a half game lead over Miami. The Phils, who have quietly ground out series victories, now sit just 3 games back of first. In fact, any one of the 5 teams could find themselves in first by the end of the weekend.
